Capsicum Jhunka –Go Green Go Healthy

Jhunka is a very authentic North Karnataka & Maharashtrain recipe made from besan(gram flour) adding up water to form a paste and sauteing with oil and is served with Jowar rotis . My mother further adds up capsicum and tomatoes to it which certainly enhances the taste further.
As Capsicum is rich in beta carotene, Vitamin A & C I use it in my kitchen often quite often.
I make this Capsicum Jhunka in  two ways one with tomatoes which makes it a little gravy like and the other with lemon juice which turns it out into dry texture.Both versions tastes yummy with rotis.
So here comes from my Grand Veg Kitchen….
Capsicum Jhunka –Go Green Go Healthy
 
Ingredients:
3 Large Capsicums chopped into small pieces
1 Big Onion finely chopped
½  inch ginger piece
5-6 Cloves of garlic
3-4 Green chilies
1 Big Tomato finely chopped
¼  th  tsp -Mustard
¼   th tsp - Cumin seeds
4 Tbsp – Besan (gram flour)
¼  th tsp –Red Chili powder
2 Tbsp – Oil
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves chopped for garnish.
 
Method with Tomatoes:
In a mixer grind together ginger, garlic and green chilies into a paste.
In the same pan heat oil on low flame and add mustard. Once it splutters add cumin seeds followed by chopped onions, above paste (ginger garlic and chili paste) and fry till onions turn pink.
Next add chopped capsicums, cover and cook on low flame for 5-6 minutes till capsicum slightly changes color and add chopped tomatoes, red chili powder and salt.
Cook for 2-3 minutes till tomatoes turn soft and then add the besan  (gram flour)spreading all over the pan and quickly stir well .If you feel its dry just sprinkle few drops of water and cover and cook on very low flame for two minutes till the besan (gram flour)gets cooked .
 Turn off the flame and let it rest for 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped Coriander leaves.
Method with Lemon juice:
In a thick bottomed pan/kadai dry roast besan (gram flour) on low flame for 5-6 minutes till it emits aroma. Transfer it into a bowl.
In a mixer grind together ginger, garlic and green chilies into a paste.
In the same pan heat oil on low flame and add mustard. Once it splutters add cumin seeds followed by chopped onions, above paste (ginger garlic and chili paste) and fry till onions turn pink.
Next add chopped capsicums, cover and cook on low flame for 5-6 minutes till capsicum slightly changes color and add red chili powder and salt.
Next sprinkle the roasted besan  (gram flour)spreading all over the pan and quickly stir well .If you feel its dry just sprinkle few drops of water and cover and cook on very low flame for two minutes till the besan (gram flour)gets cooked .
Squeeze juice of one lemon and give it a good mix.
Turn off the flame and let it rest for 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped Coriander leaves.
Serve hot with Rotis!!
Tips:
Using of nonstick pan definitely help prepare this dish quickly without burning the bottom.
I use thick bottomed kadai/pan just to avoid non stick pans.
